The City is requesting feedback on the design for public space and traffic safety improvements at Broad, Germantown, and Erie. The plans are based on previous phases of community input conducted in 2020.
The design incorporates input received through print, in-person, and digital methods from 781 residents, workers, shoppers, and SEPTA riders. View results of community engagement .
Based on feedback received, the design includes:
- A literature theme
- Circles layout for public spaces
- Fixed seating
- String lights
- Bright colors
- Combination of shade structure and trees
The City would like to hear what you think of the design. Please see below for how to provide feedback.
